    I’d be interested in one too. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any outside of proprietary, company-specific SOP’s.

    @Bobzchemist I tried searching the internet but links refer me to astm.org, which is a testing lab where I’ll have to pay for these tests.

    I want to importing bulk cosmetics from overseas and packaging in the US under my own brand name.
    I am planning to do Skin irritation, eye irritation and preservative efficacy testing for these products.
    Which skin/eye irritation test should I do? There are companies that do animal testing (with human tissue) and others use human subject (RIPT).
    For eye, some use HAT-CAM test and others Epi Accrual. which one should I do. Which test should I do? 
    And lastly, do I need to do shelf life testing for these products also?

    (reopening for following links):


    ^^ video of procedures (ex: ASTM D6252 for 90 degree label peel testing).


    ^^ sample sop (generic)


    ^^ “Label Qualification Plan” (why this comes into play).

    carry on.
